After a cancer scare, where researchers questioned him about his exposure to chemicals from common household items such as weed killers, glue, detergents, plastic meat wrap, etc, McKay Jenkins started doing his own research on the toxins that are getting into our bodies and environment. Jason Hartman and McKay Jenkins discuss what McKay found that led him to write his book, What’s Gotten into Us? Staying Healthy in a Toxic World.
Before his surgery for a benign tumor in his abdomen, McKay came across many people with various types of cancers and started wondering just how many chemicals we’re exposed to every day. The number was staggering. The toxins are all over. Leached into our environment and ingested through our air, food, water, and numerous household items and lawn care products. Even samples of our water show pharmaceuticals; mattresses contain neurotoxins that break down over time; children’s clothing contains flame retardants; many pots and pans are coated with Teflon. And that's just a start. Body burden studies that are designed to reflect the amount of toxins in a person’s body reveal high levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals in blood samples.
McKay talks about the lack of regulations written in the interest of large corporations rather than protecting consumers. Corporatocracy want consumers to shop without thinking; putting chemicals that are ILLEGAL in Europe into cosmetics here in the USA. Warning labels aren't required on cosmetics, yet the same degreaser found in the hardware store carries a warning lable.
In addition to his book, What’s Gotten into Us, McKay is the author of several other books. He is also the editor of The Peter Matthiessen Reader (Vintage, 2000), an anthology of the American nature writer’s finest and most enduring nonfiction work. McKay holds degrees from Amherst, Columbia’s Graduate School of Journalism, and Princeton, where he received a PhD in English. He has also written for Outside, Orion, The New Republic, and many other publications.

The United States is ranked No. 49 in healthcare by the World Health Organization – below some so-called third world countries. Why is this? According to Dr. Harvey Bigelsen, author of Doctors are More Harmful Than Germs: How Surgery Can Be Hazardous to Your Health – And What to Do About It, nearly all surgery is elective surgery, and germs do not cause disease. Most doctors focus on treating illness and disease with surgery and drugs, “fixing” rather than curing patients. Join Jason Hartman as he interviews Dr. Bigelsen regarding his more nontraditional approach to medicine. Listen in for a discussion of Dr. Bigelsen’s simple, if radical approach to healing chronic inflammation, why germs do not cause disease, and how even so-called “non-invasive” surgeries and procedures can harm you. Learn what Biological Medicine is and how it differs from alternative, functional medicine and modern scientific medicine, and why the AMA and Big Pharma are threatened by non-traditional medicine.
Harvey Bigelsen, M.D., served his country in Vietnam as a commanding officer in charge of mass casualties and as a trauma surgeon. He had a successful ophthalmology practice in Princeton, New Jersey, before moving to Arizona and following a more nontraditional medical philosophy. He co-authored the Arizona Homeopathic Medical Practice Act, and was appointed by then Governor Babbitt to establish a board, and while acting as president, to set the standards for holistic medicine. The law gave homeopathy equal legal status with allopathic and osteopathic medicine. He continues to consult in Nevada City, California. Bigelsen is no stranger to controversy. For more than thirty years he has been bucking the medical establishment with his more nontraditional or Lamarckian approach to medicine, and he has paid a price for his opposition. But this trailblazing medical maverick has refused to be silenced, doggedly advocating an approach to health that avoids unnecessary surgeries and drugs.
Though he trained as a medical doctor and surgeon, Dr. Bigelsen grew frustrated by his inability to help patients through the traditional methods of Western medicine. Dr. Bigelsen’s work is based in biological medicine, and involves a revolutionary approach that evaluates every patient as an individual, and develops a rational therapeutic plan based on his/her past medical and surgical history. He believes that if the patient is not getting better, it is the practitioner’s fault, because “miracles only happen when you know what you are doing.” This philosophy has been the foundation of Dr. Bigelsen’s work and drives him to find the real cause of each patient’s unique problems. Only when a cause is found, can one find a cure.
